It turns out that you all totally disagree with us about $30 being too high a price to pay for movie rentals with a shorter release window than DVDs. But I'm sticking to my guns here: don't pay them to stop punching you in the face. In other news, we examine the PlayBook and agree on this: good name. And we get leaked pics of the HP Slate 500! Dishy! --Molly

I was able to get some hands-on-time with the HP Slate 500 prototype. Very cool device. Apple has to be scared. The HP contact said it’s coming end of October. I can’t wait.

Anonymous: why you actually love the $30 movie releases
Hello Buzz Crew,
Avoiding bed bugs may be a good reason to pay extra in order to see a movie without going to the movie theater. New York movie theaters are the latest target of bed bugs. Link to CBS articles:
If I lived in New York and a movie was playing that I couldn’t wait to see I would pay the extra money in order to watch it home. It’s tough to enjoy a movie while you are scratching and looking for bugs.
Molly, have you run into any little friends while traveling to NY?
